Getting Blown Away by the Blustery Northeast: How a Screen Can Help
As the winter season approaches, the holidays will soon blow in quicker than we realize or anticipate — as will the changing weather.
And cold isn’t the only thing to settle down upon the cities of the Northeast; rather, the wind, too, will heighten the feeling of frigid air and threaten to carry our outdoor comfort along with it.
But what if we told you that installing a screen at home could help?
Wind Speeds in the Northeast
While the Northeast’s hourly wind speed may feature seasonal variations each year, one thing remains consistent: the Northeastern region features no shortage of overall wind exposure.
For example, Boston, Massachusetts faces higher-than-average wind speeds, reaching an annual average up to 12.3 miles per hour.
And, reportedly, “the windier part of the year lasts for 6.5 months, from October 25 to May 8, with average wind speeds of more than 7.9 miles per hour. The windiest month of the year in [the Northeast] is March, with an average hourly wind speed of 9.7 miles per hour.”
Of course, with more wind comes more wind chill, making it increasingly difficult to keep warm during the winter.
The Solution That is a Screen
When one thinks of a screen, they may not immediately think of protection from the wind. After all, the woven mesh is designed to allow mild breezes to pass through, thereby keeping individuals cooler during the summer.
However, the opposite is also true for Northeastern residents.
The dense mesh designs of an outdoor screen actually serves to lessen the overall force of the wind’s impact. While the initial blow is absorbed by the material, the frame also helps to redirect wind streams down and away from the inhabitants.
What’s more, screens also act as a safe barrier should debris or loose materials be lifted and thrown by the wind during periods of higher weather activity.
